The last of the pine-needles have been vacuumed away and Christmas lunch now seems like a distant memory, which can only mean one thing: the New Year is here. And with 2018 comes all-new opportunities to transform your home décor, so why not start with the bathroom? If you don’t know where to start, don’t worry – we’ve researched four bathroom trends that are sure to make a splash in 2018. Let’s take a look.
4. Smart-homes will get even smarter
You can’t have missed the advent of the smart-home over the last couple of years, with features like app-enabled lighting and heating systems becoming commonplace. As 2018 progresses, you can expect to see much more of this, with more and more products supporting smart features to give you more control than ever before. Looking for a way to give your bathroom the smart-home treatment? Get started with a nifty Bluetooth speaker shelf that’s both high-tech and practical.
3. Large showerheads with maximum water output
For a long time, showers weren’t exactly regarded as a luxury item in the bathroom, but rather a fairly standard inclusion. Thanks to advances in technology and improved manufacturing processes, the days of the boring shower are now well behind us – and 2018 is set to prove that even more. One key trend that’s sure to make an appearance is large showerheads for the ultimate showering experience. Products like the rainforest showerhead will no longer be restricted to high-end spas and hotels; in fact, you can find them in our online bathroom shop right now.
2. Keeping it simple with monochrome colour schemes
Colour made a big return to interior design in 2017, with bright and vivid shades seen in homes across the country. Perhaps as a response to this, the big prediction for colour in 2018 is that monochrome will be flavour of the year. Whether that’s entire feature walls or smaller details like bath panels and wash basins, you can quite easily incorporate monochrome into your bathroom colour scheme quite affordably – so why not give it a go?
1. Bathing for two is about to become everyday news
As bathroom technology evolves, so too do the bathing options you have open to you. If you’ve always liked to bathe solo, there’s one 2018 bathroom trend that you might want to try out: bathing for two. That’s right – in 2018, some industry analysts predict that two-person baths will become far more widespread. And wouldn’t you just know it, here at The Whirlpool Bath Shop, we have a range of double-ended whirlpool baths that are perfect for trying out this trend for yourself. Still more of a single-bather? No problem, you’ll find plenty of classic one-person tubs too.
